These really are the BEST lemon squares i've made so far.
Like everyone with the chocolate chip cookie recipe, i've been searching for that one, great lemon square recipe. And I THINK, i may have found it...so far!
They're just the PERFECT texture, and perfect amount of lemon flavor. Soo creamy, and just greattt.
Possibly the best ever Lemon Squares
from Cookie Madness
3/4 plus 2 tblsp. all purpose flour
1/3 cup powdered sugar-plus extra for garnishing
2 tblsp. cornstarch
3/8 tblsp. salt(use 1/4 tsp. plus extra pinch)
6 tblsp. unsalted butter, cut into pieces
2 large eggs
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tblsp. all purpose flour
1 tsp. lemon zest
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tblsp. half and half
1/8 tsp. salt
Don't preheat oven quite yet. Line an 8 inch square pan with foil. Spray the foil with cooking spray.
Pulse flour, powdered sugar, cornstarch, and salt in food processor. Add butter and process to blend, 8-10 seconds, then pulse until coarse. Pour what will seem like a very *dry* mixture into the lined pan and press over the pan bottom. Refrigerate for 30 minutes. While it chills, you can make the filling.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. When oven is preheated, bake pre-chilled crust for 18-20 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned.
Filling: Lightly beat the eggs, sugar, flour together in a bowl. I used a fork. Add lemon juice, lemon zest, half and half, and salt and mix well.
Reduce oven temp. to 325 degrees. Stir filling again, then pour over **warm** crust. Bake for 20 minutes or until filing no longer appears wet and shaky.
Set on wire rack to cool to room temp. Lift from pan, place on cutting board, dust with powdered sugar and cut into bars.
***I put mine in the fridge, and chilled the bars.
Chilled overnight makes them even better if u ask me!!
